One fine spring day, feeling my oats, or brain dead, depending on your school of thought, I spotted a red wasp nest in the corner of a three sided shed that was behind our house. I took aim and pelted the nest and all hell broke loose as you can imagine. I was standing about 8 to 10 feet from the nest when I noticed one wasp drop from the nest and head straight toward me. I knew I had to do something quick and running wasn't gonna cut it, so almost instinctively I raised my BB gun, cocked it and leveled it at the wasp which was still flying straight toward my face. Well, the shot of my life took place, one I'd never be able to duplicate, but like a Clint Eastwood rifle shot in fluid motion I, cocked, leveled, sighted and fired. Knocking that red wasp right out of the air about 2 feet from the end of my BB gun. OH man it was heaven. Everything was in slow motion and a perfectness of thought and action took place. I found the wasp which was dead on the ground. I knocked him down with a hit to his head, boom, gone, threat terminated. And wow. Last red wasp nest I ever shot at, it was like the pinnacle, the top, the best that shooting a BB gun could ever get. True story, not that I'm real proud of it or anything. I think I was all of 13, maybe. Let me tell you though, I strutted around the farm for, maybe, a month knowing I could kill in one quick, surgical motion. Beware insects. Horn is on duty and he takes no prisoners. Oh, man, to be a kid again.

    Added later; My vote is Beretta, cougar or mini-cougar, Kahr MK9/40, Para Ordnance 9mm (my carry gun) and like Brazier, Glocks are not on my list even tho I carried a G27 for several years. Good and solid, but I hate plastic on a gun. It's ok in a lunch box, but not on a gun. Of course, I carry heavy guns. lol
    awesome story!!!!! I am visualizing a matrix type shot in slow motion!

    I realize that this is a "favorite" thread, but often enough, someone about which is the "best" handgun.

    Just like I don't think there's a best tool in my toolbox, I don't think I can come up with a "best" gun. Seems to me that the "best target shooting gun" just couldn't be the same "best carry gun".

    Now if you could find a .45 cal handgun about the size of a 3AT, that felt like my P99 in the hand, looked as sharp as a 4" blued Python, and could hold a 1" group at 25 yards; well then I might reconsider. I'm not holding my breath.

    Besides, what reason would you have for getting more than one then!

    Well, I'll only speak upon what I own...

    Vote = none of these

    I have Glocks and an XD. And I like them all. But my SIG's hold their place for me. I have 3 of them.

    For caliber choice, I am probably going to go with a 9mm because of the cost of cheap practice ammunition. honestly a 9mm loaded with some hydra shocks or equivalent should be enough to stop someone or definitely change there priorities, but if you feel another caliber would be better feel free to speak your opinion.


    Price should be under $650

    I forgot to add in the poll that if you have other suggestions please post them,

    I mainly want reliability, and accuracy!

    Used Guns would be a possibility.

    Thanks
    I took this from a previous post of mine. What do you think.

    Seems a lot of people are asking about small 9mm pistols lately.
    Before you buy. You might consider this one.
    It is a slim 9mm for CCW, the soon to come Bersa 9 BPCC 9mm


    I believe it is an 8+1 single stack mag and should come with two. This gun should be priced at about 350.00, if you don't mind single stack pistols this would probably fit your needs perfectly.
    I will be looking at them when they come out, but wish it were a double stack or that they made a double stack model of it.

    It is a smaller gun for CCW but larger than the KelTec. Should be a nice pistol when Bersa lets it loose in a few months.

    All the new P99s I've seen recently are over 750.00 unless you are buying used.
    There is a guy over at Glock talk that is trying to sell a (used) P99 40SW with 5 mags etc for 650.00

    My most accurate pistol up until I bought my XDm9mm was my P99. Then I screwed up and bought a Glock 17. Now I have to take all three of them back to the range and do a shoot out to see which one is best, because the XDm and the G17 are nail drivers.

    Hard to choose!

    But for me the PPS....... Or P99 ( i would want a compact model and that I dont have just the Reg. P99.) so the PPS wins for Me! Hard to choose!
    Until it buy a P99C too and then I still be unsure.
